Jaclyn is a 23 year old who, in 2019, received multiple concussions in a 5 month span ending her college soccer career and leading her to PCS. She will be sharing her experience on finishing college despite these circumstances, dealing with loss of identity, the importance of finding the right health care professional, as well as the variety of treatments she underwent to get her life back. It was this experience that ultimately solidified her drive to start physical therapy school this coming August to help others struggling with brain injuries.
